We need hundreds of thousands of pounds every year to fund our life-changing information and advice services. Much of this comes from individual members of the public. As such, our work is made possible by your collective generosity in a very real way.
Clicking on the Donate Online button (below) will take you to our secure donations page where you can make either a one off gift by credit/debit card, or a regular monthly gift by direct debit.
Regular gifts from as little as £3 a month are especially valuable to us as they help us to plan ahead with confidence. This is important when funding ongoing services such as our Helpline. But we are grateful for any gift of whatever size you can afford.
Leaving a gift to DLF in your will is a way of ensuring that we will be able to go on helping the increasing number of older and disabled people who need our services in years to come.
You may prefer to make a regular gift by direct debit. If you would like us to send you a form, please email us or telephone 0300 123 3084.
What our advice costs
£3 pays for us to respond to a typical call to our Helpline and mail out any information requested.
£20 covers the full operating costs of our Helpline for an hour. In that time, trained advisors could answer up to seven enquiries.
If you are a UK tax payer, don't forget to select the Gift Aid option. This can increase the value of your donation by 25%. For example, a gift of £20 would be worth £25 to us at no extra cost to you!
If you have made a donation in the past and are not sure if you have given us permission to claim Gift Aid, please call 0300 123 3084.
